Originally posted by bluefunk Originally posted by Elsabolts Originally posted by Torvac same as always. loads of "will be great/new/exciting" - but once its out, its half assed and bugged. new exciting melee weapon ? ok then pls get rid of cleaving bosses oh and make melee viable vs. ranged. reticule is again nothing that adds to content - a fing waste of time. also loads of people allready have a hard time with the controls and targeting. fix bugs, fix skills, fix pvp, fix dx11, fulfill the promise you made about "play as you want" because atm there is only a few viable ways to play endgame !
Humm, Seems F2P may be closer then everyone thought.
You obviously don’t play the game or follow it in any meaningful way other than to bash it. TSW is an awesome game, many updates and features incoming including missions, raid, theatre and other rpg stuff, like sitting, smoking cigars etc also reticule aiming for combat and is all in Issue 1.4.
I'm not opposed to F2P, but I'm not sure they will go this route. It hasn't been the miracle drug they were looking for to fix AoC. I don't see it fixing the revenue problem they're facing now.
Trion has really set the bar for content updates and patching. I don't see Funcom being able to compete really. Even RIFT isn't worth a sub to me and TSW certainly isn't. They should consider B2P with their cash shop. I think it is a revenue model that would attract more players while still providing a certain revenue stream from purchases. What they should not do is lower the box cost to try and lure subs in. That just won't work and they'll be shooting themselves in the foot in the process.
TSW should open up for F2P only in PVP new world.
this new world should be maked by the players them self like the car game trackmania.
then TSW would be the most played MMO in thr world. Hope you read this Joel!!

There already is and has been for awhile. Go to the website sometime.
I stand corrected. After some digging on the website (and I do mean digging) I find they are offering a 3 day trial. For someone like me, that works out to about 6-8 hours of gameplay, part of that being eaten up with installation and setup.
Oh yeah. That should be plenty of time to decide whether to drop 50 bucks on this game. Really working to draw in those new players, I see.

Your joking, right?
Here's there homepage, mentions of the trial circled in red.

I dunno about you, but I set my expectations pretty high and I like how Funcom is handling the game.
Its supposed to be a joke, re-read maybe? or maybe I should leave comedy altogether...
Nah, taking your post history (not saying it's wrong or anything) one would assume otherwise is all.
Ill give up comedy
Now that was funny!

Just so you know, the trial begins first time you log in, not when you register on the website and begin installation/setup.
Also, I'm pretty sure you still have the option to complete 30 missions and have another 2 days added to the trial for a total of 5 days.
I think that's plenty of time to know if you like the game or not, especially after completing 30 missions for the extra 2 days. If after completing 30 missions you are not hooked with the game, then I think it's safe to assume you should just move on and find a game that suits your gaming tastes.

Have we seen 4 yet? No we havent.
- New auxillery weapon (chain saw) Ok 1 quest there
- Combat feature (combat reticle) Not content in fact worthless and silly
- First RAID (New York) Content only for the 10% that play endgame
- New non-combat RP addition for Roleplay community (club in London) Not content
- New investigation missions Unknown number in fact they said nothing on the missions
Seems like the largest update so far to me.
Considering this is one of the monthly updates (as in not waiting 3 or 4 months for content) it's more than worth a monthly sub fee for updates like that. There's no grasping at straws about it, at this rate they're only second to Rift.
It's a matter of opinion, the problem with TSW is until they implement new content on a significant scale like that promised before launch the game just goes stale for those who have already played through all the existing content....which doesn't take long for even a casual player.
It's a heafty subs fee for tiny irregular content updates, most of which so far have had a multitude of bugs and other problems associated with them. It's also quite an antisocial game when you get to the "end-game", with most of the chat being elitist group spam or arguments about spawn camping.
Shame really, TSW is a great game, but it only has a few months longevity and they are not producing enough content to keep people playing or paying.
Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy
